TREATING ACNE WITH PEELS
Superficial chemical peels are extremely popular treatments at dermatology offices. But are they a good treatment for acne ?
Before you have your chemical peel done, get a first hand review from your favourite Dermatologist Dr Sonam as she shares her experience about chemical peeling for pimples.
🧑⚕️ What Is a Light Chemical Peel?
Light peels are the most superficial of all chemical peels. They're the most popular and widely done chemical peels because there is no downtime. These peels are often called "lunchtime peels" because you can get one done quickly over a lunch hour and return to work immediately.
🧑⚕️ HOW DO THEY WORK FOR ACNE ?
Peels don't really peel the skin, despite what the name implies. They rapidly exfoliate the skin, allowing dead skin cells to shed more effectively.
By keeping dead skin cells and excess oil from clogging the hair follicle, pore blockages (comedones) and pimples can be reduced.
During a light chemical peel treatment, the skin is exfoliated using an alpha or beta hydroxy acid.
Done in a series, these peels can improve mild to moderately severe cases of acne, and can be given over the face or another body area where acne is a problem.
◉ Beta hydroxy acids are especially helpful in dissolving excess oil buildup within the pores, and they tend to be less irritating than AHAs.
Salicylic acid, a familiar and effective anti-acne ingredient, is the most commonly used BHA for chemical peel treatments.
🧑⚕️ WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR PEEL?
→The skin is first thoroughly cleaned and dried.
→The AHA or BHA is applied to the face and neck which may produce warm stinging sensation after the peel is applied.
→The peel is removed with cool water and a neutralizing agent.
→The skin is dried and Skin Repair Serum/cream is applied.
→Finally a sunscreen is applied to complete the procedure.
After your peel, your skin will look slightly pink/red. This redness can fade in just a few hours time, depending on the strength of the peeling agent used and how long it was left on the skin.

🧑⚕️ Side Effects of Skin Peels :
Redness, Peeling, Flaking of the skin are expected as a part of the procedure and don’t last long.
Serious side effects like BURNS can occur if the peeling solution strength, timing and skin condition is not supervised by a DERMATOLOGIST. (SALONS are not places to get active MEDICAL TREATMENTS)
🧑⚕️ Benefits of Chemical Peeling for ACNE :
⇨Quick and Easy to perform- can be performed in less than 30 min.
⇨Non invasive and Safe (if done by trained personnel)
⇨Helps treat ACTIVE ACNE by deep cleansing the pores.
⇨Helps balance the oil production in the skin.
⇨Reduces the frequency of blackheads, whiteheads and acne.
⇨Helps lighten skin tone and treats Dark Spots simultaneously.
⇨Can be given over the face or another body area where acne is a problem.
🧑⚕️ ARE THEY REALLY EFFECTIVE FOR ACNE ?
While they can reduce pore blockages and breakouts, superficial peels are best used as an add-on to your regular acne treatment routine.
Unless your breakouts are mild, you'll also need to use a daily acne treatment product to really get those blemishes under control.
🚨 P.S : The picture is me getting my Salicylic peel done for my acne. I have been routinely doing these peels once every 20-30 days (it has replaced my facials for last 10 years).
📌 While I still get active acne on & off - they definitely don’t get to stay too long and have not been able to leave behind long term memories (scars).
